asked the Secretary of State for War why the casualty allowances in the Sudan are considerably lower than those payable in respect of casualties arising out of the Great War?
The pensions payable in respect of recent casualties in the Sudan are in accordance with the scale which was adopted by His Majesty's Government as appropriate to the normal conditions of service in the Navy, Army and Air Force after the War.
Is it the intention of the right hon. Gentleman to reduce the scale of allowances in respect of the Great War to that of this scale in 1926?
Oh, no, Sir.
